Our Vision

The enduring success of TeaGschwendner is guaranteed by a companywide commitment to excellence. We demand that our tea products be of the highest quality and that, as our teas travel from the garden to the cup, this quality is assured by certified, transparent processes. TeaGschwendner stands for premium quality, safety, value, expertise and independence.

As we grow, we make certain that our suppliers have the opportunity to grow and succeed along with us. We cultivate relationships with producers and share with them their daily challenges, making mutual commitments to the environmentally sustainable cultivation of tea. We actively concern ourselves with the living and working conditions of the people who grow and produce the tea that we purchase. We demand that our suppliers share our vision of social responsibility.

And, naturally, it is just as important to us to create an equitable workplace at home. We invest heavily in education and training of our teams, keeping them abreast of developments in our industry. Our franchise partners and store managers have an integral voice in shaping our policy, strategy and product offering. And you, as the customer, have a voice too. Your ideas and suggestions are passed regularly from the store level up to the team at headquarters.

At TeaGschwendner, we encourage open dialogue. We would be delighted to exchange views on the principles which guide our enterprise.
